Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 E-Tron SUV and Sportback offer all the comfort, luxury, and features of Audi’s other premium models, with a fully electric twist.

PROS
Well-proportioned exteriors
Quiet, luxurious cabin
Straightforward, quick charging
Family-size interior space and versatility

CONS
Overly complex touchscreen layout
Climate controls low in line of sight
Range doesn’t measure up to Tesla

For 2021, Audi introduces a more affordable base model that features the Premium designation. Available on both the regular and Sportback e-tron, it costs about $9000 less than the mid-level Premium Plus. It can also be equipped with the Convenience Plus package, which includes driver assists such as adaptive cruise control.

PROS
Whisper-quiet operation,
luxurious state-of-the-art cabin,
tows up to 4000 pounds.

CONS
Other luxury EVs have more range,
not very engaging behind the wheel,
none of the flashiness exhibited by rivals.

BMW's second full-electric car is a little more 'normal', a pragmatic EV that can go a long way on a charge

Pros
Goes a long way,
quietly on relatively little electricity

Cons
Doesn't explore electric packaging possibilities.
Not 4WD

The BMW iX3 is good to drive and practical, with a better range than rivals, namely the Audi E-tron and Mercedes EQC. It also has a fab infotainment system and a smart interior, so it’s a fine buy if you’re looking for a big electric SUV.

Pros
Longer range than most direct rivals
Great infotainment system
Comparatively well priced

Cons
Not as fast as rivals
Audi E-tron is quieter
Tesla Model 3 has a longer range and faster charging

By:

Pros
Drives like a BMW should
Looks won't alienate EV newbies
Impressive range and performance

Cons
High price and costly options
No lower-powered versions
Facelift models have already appeared
